Manchester United close to completing the signing of Shakhtar Donetsk midfielder Fred

Shakhtar's Fred to move to Manchester United for EUR 50 mln

Manchester United are in the pole position to sign Manchester City target midfielder after reports reveal that the Red Devils are willing to extra to get their man. And now, if I'm not mistaken, there was news of a very strong bid from United.

The Manchester Evening News reports Fred's transfer from Shakhtar is close to completion, with United ready to tie up a £53m deal to bring him to the club.

United are also hoping to take advantage of Mauricio Pochettino's desire for Tottenham Hotspur to do their transfer business early in the pursuit of £50 million plus rated Belgium defender Toby Alderweireld.

IPL 2018 Final: CSK makes a CHAMPION comeback with Watson's brilliant century
The New Zealander was disappointed that the team could not win the all important final after posting 178 for six. Apart from Shane Watson's unbeaten 117, Williamson had words of praise for his bowlers too.

United had a progressive season under the tutelage of the Portuguese gaffer but they failed to provide any kind of challenge to Manchester City who sealed the title pretty comfortably with a huge 19 points margin. Napoli's Jorginho has emerged as a preferable midfield option for Pep Guardiola in the meantime.

Fred is expected to cost around £53million, which is his release clause, with Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov adamant that the Ukrainian club will extract maximum value for the midfielder.

And while United are now the club leading the charge for the Brazil global, Shakhtar president Rinat Akhmetov insists that he is expecting offers this summer to be no lower than the one which City submitted in January. "And we had enough strength to reject it".

The 25-year-old, who has been called up to Brazil squad for the 2018 World Cup, was the subject of interest from Man City a few months ago.

"So we will touch our squad but more than spend, spend, spend, we believe in the evolution of our players".

Often compared to compatriot Fernandinho, especially when linked to City, Fred's style more closely resembles that of Chelsea's N'Golo Kanté, but with more creativity.
